A delightful picture book about a timid bat frightened of nearly everything. Belfry becomes the navigator for Mildred the witch in a race against the fastest rollercoaster in the world. During the race Belfry nearly faints and is ready to give up—but doesn't. Striking full-color illustrations make this story about overcoming fears ideal for readers under eight.
